ST. LOUIS — A driver is suing a Missouri company and employees, citing alleged wrongful termination and retaliation.
Kevin Voisey filed a complaint Aug. 24 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Adams & Associates Inc., Redford Salmon, Michael W. Goodall, Lydia Hendrix and Roy Adams, alleging the defendants violated the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 9, 2016, after being hired by the defendants, he witnessed sexual gestures that placed Job Corp Center students at risk. The plaintiff reported the harassment to management but was terminated due to alleged pretextual issues with his job performance.
As a result, Voisey claims he suffered lost wages, benefits, embarrassment and professional reputation.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to take proper action in reprimanding employees doing unlawful acts during the course of employment, failed to protect employees who exposed employees engaging in misconduct and failed to conduct reviews before terminating an employee.
The plaintiff seeks to award of full compensation for damages incurred, with costs and interest as provided by law, and for other relief as the court deems proper. He is represented by Lynette M. Petruska and Steven R. Kratky of Pleban & Petruska Law LLC in St. Louis.
